This book is opened by eager hands, and 
these pages are turned by young hearts. . . . We 
take a moment to recall . . . to think . . . to 
appreciate life and traditions at St. Mary's and 
now to reveal the search for knowledge, se- 
curity, and our inner selves. We turn every 
page slowly, sometimes stopping, but then mov- 
ing on . . . touching upon the shadows of 
strength and depth, and gazing upon the rich- 
ness of gold, symbolizing time and tradition. 
Our hearts, once filled with wonder, amaze- 
ment, and challenge — now burst with reward, 
success, and pride. 

(§nr hM 

In the stillness of our chapel, our best loved 
tradition, we find a special place, a solitude in 
which lies the very core of St. Mary's. Here we 
quietly sit, gazing silently at the flickering 
candles' light as it casts long shadows, reflecting 
the intangible aspects of life. Looking around 
us, we catch glimpses of bowed heads, folded 
hands, and thoughtful stares. A tear is quickly 
brushed aside, lest it fall and burst into tiny 
droplets, breaking the spell of our wonder and 
of our world — a tear symbolizing newly found 
joy or hidden gratitude; a tear standing for sad- 
ness, relief, or maybe just a heart's release that 
we failed to recognize before now. We rise . . . 
slowly . . . and walk out — ready to resume our 
place at St. Mary's; sunlight meets our eyes, 
and we blink to ease the suddenness of reality. 
We forget momentarily the well of emotion in- 
side us, pushing it aside until another time, and 
replacing its effects with a smile and the urgency 
of our filled obligations. . . . 

St. Mary's unfolds itself to us on opening day. 
The old girls frantically dash up and down stairs, 
across the campus walks, in and out of rooms — 
and within a few hours, it is hard to realize 
one ever left St. Mary's three months before. 
The peals of laughter almost vibrate the build- 
ings themselves, and yes . . . it is good to be 
back again. This wild and frantic spectacle is 

tempered by another phase of that first day as 
we watch the new girls walk excitedly, yet hesi- 
tantly, up the steps of Smedes. Within minutes, 
however, the doubt is erased, and a warm and 
cordial greeting lights a gloiv to each new face. 
Somehow we feel they are glad to be here, too. 
Another reassurance is present when we meet 
our counselors who are throughout the year our 
guides to life here, our example to folloiv, and 
most important, our unforgettable friends. 
Tradition in the form of the New Girl-Old Girl 
Tea provides our first opportunity for meeting 
the faculty and for establishing a special friend- 
ship with our Big Sisters. From the first hello, 
the year begins, and soon each of us settles to 
a routine of our own. It is not long before we

wonder how we manage to fit ourselves into so 
demanding a day — but finally we lose ourselves 
in our work, in newly acquired interests, in new 
responsibilities, and in old traditions. We learn 
to give of ourselves in countless ways, and in 
serving, we learn to appreciate the results of 
our efforts. 

The Circle - Beacon Christmas 
Party is one of the tangible repre- 
sentations of the two honorary so- 
cieties of St. Mary's. Both organi- 
zations work together to give the 
entire student body a special spirit 
of Christmas at St. Mary's. More 
important than this aspect, they 
offer an opportunity for us to share 
equal excitement and to radiate an 
awakening glow to the spirit of 
tradition, for here we are gathered 
— not as individuals, but as a cor- 
porate body. 

Not only do special functions at 
which outstanding girls marshal 
in beautiful, white, traditional 
dresses, allow us to be together, 
but also in chapel and assembly, 
we share a personal closeness and 
understanding. There is a distinc- 
tive quality represented when we 
are together — when we may look 
around us and possess the mirac- 
ulous sensation of security and of 
warm responsiveness to each other. 
We experience again the fortitude 
of security in our class functions, 
our club participation, and our 
hall contributions. We release our- 
selves in an array of activity and 
sometimes through our activeness, 
we lose personal touch with our- 
selves. In our perseverance, our 
constancy, and our firmness, we 
drift almost to a degree of inade- 
quacy and dejection, but to shield 
our strength of purpose, ive probe 
into the center of our being and 
search for a warm response, so 
rich, so restoring, so compensat- 
ing. . . . 

A time to stop . . . to regret 
. . . to build again. We learn by 
mistake, and we falter through 
thoughtlessness. Through the shad- 
ows come hearts yearning to un- 
derstand, to comfort, and to place 
again. Often for the first time, we 
realize the depth and sincerity of 
our friends, and even in the still- 
ness of solitude we are not alone. 
A masterpiece of strength stands 
before us, and with unbelief we 
examine ourselves to find the pro- 
fundity of being. We acknowledge 
the integrity and concern of our 
leaders, and we accept our appre- 
hensions as a part of developing. 
Though we are sometimes reluctant 
to accept ourselves completely, we 
grasp the sureness and the strength 
which lies within us. and now with 
positiveness we meet challenge 
after challenge. 

We turn from ourselves to view 
a larger scope — that of St. Mary's. 
We perceive with wonder this 
sometimes perplexing side of life 
here. Yet we know in order to 
understand ourselves and others, 
we must allow for disillusion. For 
this is life — not to be tossed care- 
lessly, but to be handled with con- 
scientiousness. In this way we 
build, we cultivate, and we pre- 
serve. We follow with fresh aware- 
ness, and we lead with added fore- 
sight. A light of hope brightens our 
path and reassuring hands guide 
the way. We are proud of this 
unity which has given us strength, 
this love which has allowed for us 
understanding, and this Honor 
which has built for us character.

From the depth of great lessons, we learn 
to respect and appreciate a mandatory basis 
for happiness, not only at St. Mary's, but for 
life in society — a framework which culmi- 
nates our personality — friendship. In re- 
sponding to the ivholeness of friendship, we 
insert a depth to tradition, making it mean- 
ingful to us and invaluable to the legacy of 
St. Mary's. Traditions at St. Mary's manifest 
themselves in simplicity. We ivould not dream 
of passing on Hillsboro Street without ac- 
knowledging the kicking post. A quick trip to 
the Little Store, the anticipation of hall parties, 
the birthdays always remembered in the din- 
ing hall, and many other occasions become 
standard traditions for St. Mary's and at the 
same time a part of us as individuals. Familiar 
tradition reveals itself on a Saturday night 
when we run to sign in and finally when we 
congregate in one room for a reminiscence 
of the night's events. These are the things that 
repeat themselves, yet with a variety of mean- 
ing. We momentarily forget our books; a new 
kind of freedom becomes ours — and we ac- 
knowledge the independence of our growing 
maturity and individuality. 

We are the girls who fill these halls — with 
talking and laughing and friendliness. We 
have imbued into the walls themselves a kind 
of life ivhich throughout the years has grown 
to symbolize our movement and into which 
we have instilled our personalities. We have 
unconsciously filled an empty space ivithin 
us, and with a surge of unexpected awareness, 
we know we have found our place here — a 
place all our own which has developed and 
maintained itself while we hurried from the 
realization of our success. We smile noiv as 
we think back on it all, recalling the times 
when we felt crushing disappointment and the 
times most dear to us. We can relate many 
evidences of our happiness, coming to us in- 
significantly and with our deserving efforts; 
yet happiness touching every heart and always 
to be remembered.

"And gladly ivould he 
gladly teach." — Chaucer 

Acting as chairman of the English 
Department is only a small part of Mr. 
Tate's life at St. Mary's. During the eight 
years in which he has taught English 
courses to both the high school and col- 
lege departments, Mr. Tate has shoivn a 
genuine interest which draws students to 
call upon him for countless reasons. Not 
only can one count on him to know "the 
latest" in literary circles, but also where 
one should go in New York after the play, 
or what the current feeling is concerning 
civil rights in Mississippi, his home state. 
The annual Circle ■ Beacon Christmas 
party ivould not be the same without Mr. 
Tate as Santa to read "The Night before 
Christmas." It is during spring break 
that Mr. and Mrs. Tate undertake to 
chaperone a group of St. Mary's girls to 
Neiv York. To the Seniors, Mr. Tate 
probably holds a special place in helping 
answer the eternal questions of "What 
am I doing?" and "Where am I going?" 
In gratitude for his contribution in foster- 
ing a stimulating academic atmosphere 
on campus and to his untiring interest in 
the student of St. Mary's this Stage- 
coach is dedicated.

The Stagecoach presents to all of us a record of the year 
that has passed. I hope that it will always remind you of your 
St. Mary's days and the many friends each of you have made. 
It is my wish that your life has been enriched by your ex- 
periences here and that your future contributions to society 
will be greater because you have been a St. Mary's girl. 



Dean of Students 

B.A., Wellesley College. 

Helping each of us to find our special 
place at St. Mary's, Miss Edith Anne Rich- 
ardson, our dean, gives of herself daily 
both to the girls and to the faculty. Through 
her warm personality and sincere devotion 
to the students, Miss R. has made her place 
in the heart of every one at St. Mary's. The 
little light in her office that often burns into 
the early morning hours gives us reassur- 
ance — that feeling that Miss R. is always 
there and willing to council, to advise, and 
above all, to understand.

Friendship, devotion, and sincerity mean Dr. 
Moultrie Guerry to everyone at St. Mary's. Sur- 
rounded by a radiant glow, he moves about the 
campus and gently takes each of us into his 
heart. During the weekly chapel services, in his 
classroom, and each Sunday our Chaplain, Dr. 
Guerry, leads, teaches, and guides us through 
our spiritual lives. He is all of this and yet more 
— more because Dr. Guerry has given his love 
to all at St. Mary's.

Truly symbolizing the Student Government Association is a 
simple, black notebook. Given at least one book outlining Iter 
duties, a student government officer must constantly refer to 
it for guidance. These notebooks contain the essence of student 
representation. However, the book alone is insufficient. To 
meet the responsibilities of Student Government work, an 
officer must in the end depend on herself. Heading the Student 
Government Association is its president, Dianne Ricks. She 
must, along with her officers, serve as a link between the faculty 
and student body and between the faculty and administration. 
Assisting Dianne is Harriet Gilliam, Vice President. One of the 
Vice Presidents many responsibilities is to plan and execute 
orientation week. Mike Hill, as Secretary, keeps records for 
Honor Board. Studen' Government meetings, and for the Treas- 
ury. Duties of Michelle Bratton. President of Day Students, are 
to keep the Day Students informed of Student Government 
activities and to serve on Hall Council and the Legislative Body. 
Pammy Holcomb's most important responsibilities as Chair- 
man of Hall Council are to select hall counselors and to serve 
as chairman of the Disciplinary Committee, Minor Offense 
Committee, and Hall Council. As Secretary of Hall Council, 
Mary Ravenel must keep an accurate account of points accumu- 
lated by girls and issue campuses whenever necessary. These 
officers work to benefit the entire study body which they

Legislative Body 

Composed of faculty members and student repre- 
sentatives from each class, the Legislative Body is the 
third branch of Student Government. With its three 
committees, the Legislative Body studies and makes 
necessary changes in the school constitution each year 
and considers and votes on student proposals to change 
or modify certain regulations. This year a petition 
for a reading day before exams was submitted to and 
passed by the Body. Established in 1938. the purpose 
of this branch of Student Government is to promote 
better relations between students and faculty and to 
contribute to the feeling that Student Government is 
the responsibility of every member at St. Mary's.

Hull Council 

An important part of Student Government, the Hall 
Council, is composed of two counselors from each 
resident hall and three Day Student counselors. 
Through two branches, the Disciplinary Committee 
and the Minor Offence Committee, the Hall Council 
has authority over all student regulations and behavior 
not directly dealt with by the Honor Council. The 
counselors are chosen for the qualities of depend- 
ability, character, understanding, and patience. They 
are important in helping the new girls adjust to St. 

Mary's life and in acting as advisors to problems the 
girls face during the year. The Hall Council as a 
tradition itself holds its own traditions. The counselors 
return to St. Mary's a week early in the fall to prepare 
for the arrival of the girls and to welcome each one 
individually. In addition, they decorate the halls and 
make name tags to put on each door. It is also a tra- 
dition that they give the girls on their hall a party in 
the fall to welcome them and at Christmas.

As Assembly Chairman. Jackie Myers is responsible for 
planning and presiding over assemblies and for inviting 
guest speakers to visit St. Mary's. With the help of her ad- 
visor. Mrs. Fish, she has given much time in choosing an 
interesting variety of programs. Among those presented by 
different groups at St. Mary's are the Senior class annual 
fashion show, the Cold Cuts' singing, and programs of various 
clubs such as the C.C.U.N.'s account of the U. N. mock as- 
sembly at Chapel Hill and the Dramatics Club production 
of "The Sandbox." In addition, members of the faculty and 
outstanding people in North Carolina have participated in 
assembly this year. Sharon Finch, Miss North Carolina (a 
St. Mary's graduate), spoke about her role as Miss North 
Carolina. Others included Senator Voit Gilmore, who spoke 
on travel services; Lydia Fish, who played the guitar; and 
Phil Ellis, who read I ncle Remus stories.

The Marshals are elected from the rising senior 
class in the late spring of each year. Selected for 
their poise, charm, and over-all attractiveness, they 
keep roll in assembly and usher at Chapel services 
and concerts. They also lead the Sophomores and 
Seniors at graduation, present flowers to singers at 
concerts and usher at the Old-Girl New-Girl reception. 
In addition, this year they marshaled at May Day. 
According to tradition, when the new marshals take 

over two weeks before the end of school, they wear 
white dresses handed down to them from the preced- 
ing marshals. At all functions afterward, except for 
Chapel services, they wear their traditional long 
white dresses. At, Graduation, the head Marshal wears 
a white sash, and the other Marshals wear blue 
sashes. A beautiful tradition is the dropping of a 
handkerchief in front of Smedes by the Chief Mar- 
shal to end the school year.

The Order of 
The Circle 

The most respected organization at St. Mary's, the 
Order o) the Circle, endeavors to distinguish outstand- 
ing students in the college department. Members in- 
clude those girls who strive to use their influence to 
inact school spirit and good relations between students 
and faculty. Established in 1938, the Circle is a secret 
society, holding its ceremonies and meetings in abso- 
lute secrecy. There are many traditions connected with 
the Circle: the light blue ring uorn underneath the 
St. Mary's ring, the circle stone outside of Holt, the 
sale of mugs, and the midnight walks behind the 
guiding light of the torch. The walks are ended in 
front of Smedes by completing a circle thus sym- 
bolizing their name. As the Circle is symbolic of unity, 
it is the duty of each member, through her character. 
individuality, dependability, anil fellowship to bring 
together and unify every branch of life at St. Mary's.

The Beacon 

Organized by Miss Elizabeth Bason in 1948. the 
Beacon has become an established high school tradi- 
tion at St. Mary's. It's main purpose is to promote 
school spirit, loyalties, and co-operation among the 
underclassmen. Girls are selected for Beacon mem- 
bership because of their qualities of leadership, 
scholarship, and participation in extracurricular ac- 
tivities. There are several traditions associated with 
this society: the lantern, the walk around campus be- 
ginning at the Chapel and terminating on the steps oj 
Smedes. and the Beacon pin. To raise money this year. 
the members sold St. Mary's decals, post cartls. and 
popcorn. In addition, for their service project, the 
girls made Easter baskets for the children in the Wake 
County Memorial Hospital.

The Stagecoach 

Started in 1876. St. Mary's annual was originally a com- 
bination of yearbook and literary magazine called the "Muse." 
In 1925. the name was changed to Stagecoach, and it gradually 
became only a yearbook. This year, the staff has worked hard 
taking pictures, organizing the layout, selling advertisements, 
and writing the copy, to meet the deadline.

St. Mary's newspaper, the Belles, is pub- 
lished thirteen times during the school year.

chooses her staff editors, photographer, 
head typist, and circulation manager: in 
the fall, try-outs are held for the other staff 
members. This year, the Belles has had a 
wide selection of articles on all phases of 
life at St. Mary's. Articles have appeared 
featuring various school clubs and organi- 
zations, class and Student Government of- 
ficers, athletics. Assembly programs, con- 
certs, and special chapel services. There 
have also been articles on special events 
such as the Penick party, the Freshman- 
Sophomore dance, and holiday plans.

Handbook Committee 

The Handbook Committee is responsible for editing 
the traditional handbook at St. Mary's. Selected by 
student vote, the editor chooses the staff with which 
she would like to work. This official booklet of the 
Student Government Association contains the rules, 
regulations, and activities which are a vital part of 
the functioning of the school. Being brought up to 
date according to rule changes, the committee works 
with the Dean, the heads of the departments, the Stu- 
dent Government officials, and the Registrar to in- 
clude all aspects of life at St. Mary's. This year sev- 
eral changes have been made, including the grading 
system. An academic average of 70 rather than 65 is 
required for a student to pass. Each student receives 
her handbook during the summer, and soon after the 
beginning of the academic year all girls are tested 
on its material. 

Perry Grimes, Editor.

Young Democrats Club 

Girls interested in contributing their 
efforts to the Democratic party are eager 
to participate in a club designed to at- 
tract future voters and to organize their 
efforts into effective work. Election year 
provided ample opportunity for members 
to help their party. In the fall the YDC 
served at the Democratic Headquarters in 
Raleigh converting paper cartons into 
money containers to use at a rally for 
Johnson held at the W'illiam Neal Reyn- 
olds Coliseum. There the Young Demo- 
crats became "Johnson girls" and col- 
lected contributions for the Presidential 
campaign. The club also has as its pur- 
pose to increase its members" knowledge 
of and interest in politics and current na- 
tional affairs.

Young Republicans Club 

With the addition of many members 
and a revival of enthusiasm and inter- 
est, the Young Republicans Clubs has 
been very active this rear. Attention 
was focused on the 1964 Presidential 
election in which the girls worked hard 
to promote their candidate. Barry 
Goldwater. They spent many hours 
both at the Republican Headquarters 
in Raleigh anil at the Goldwater booth 
on the State Fair grounds. The mem- 
bers also staged a rally on campus to 
advance Goldwater's financial anil 
moral support. Even after his disap- 
pointing defeat. St. Mary's supporters 
still found time to write him a letter 
expressing their regret and stating 
their optimism for the future. They 
were most delighted upon receiving 
his personal replies and stood firm in 
their belief that Barry will rate in '68.

Girls at St. Mary's interested in civic activities find much reward 
in the Young Women s Christian Association. This year their worth- 
while projects on campus have included distributing pledge cards 
for Chapel offerings, sponsoring the sale of St. Mary's charms, and 
making crosses for Palm Sunday. The club has also centered activi- 
ties outside the campus. } .W.C.A, members spent many afternoons 
at the Methodist Orphanage reading to the children and helping them 
with their homework. In addition, they gave the Orphans a Christmas 
party and took them to the Ice Capades. Girls also visited Dix Hill 
where they talked to the patients, acting as a link between the hos- 
pital and the outside world. Moreover, other students took the chil- 
dren from the North Carolina State School for the Blind to the May 
Day dress rehearsal and organized an old clothes drive for these 


Striving to create an awareness and 
appreciation for the United Nations, 
members of the Collegiate Council on the 
United Nations discuss world affairs and 
hold special forums on particular topics. 
As president, Amy Hardy has planned as 
interesting variety of programs and has ar- 
ranged to have speakers on different 
phases of current events talk to the group. 
The highlight of this year's work was the 
club's participation in the mock U.N. 
Assembly held in Chapel Hill. Represent- 
ing the delegation from Australia, six 
C.C.U.N. members made intensive re- 
search on the country and its relationship 
with the United Nations. After the trip, 
conducting an assembly program, the girls 
reenacted all that they had learned, and 
they emphasized the importance of being 
aivare of current world affairs.

Directed by Mr. Stephen Young, the choir contributes music for 
the weekly chapel and Sunday services. This year the choir also 
sang for the carol-singing at Christmas and for the Feast of Lights 
during Epiphany. Through their music, they add much to the atmos- 
phere of worship in our chapel. Also contributing to the spiritual 
life at St. Mary's are the Crucifers and Acolytes. The Crucifers take 
turns carrying the Crucifix each Sunday, and the Acolytes must 
light the candles for each service. As the chapel is the vital part of 
life at St. Mary's, these girls have highly rewarding tasks.

during the year. According to tradition, a 
Christmas program was given the niglil be-

well as some unusual religious and folk 
pieces. They also presented a joint concert 
in the spring with the East Carolina Men's 
Club. The other main attraction during the 
year was the traditional program given at

ance with the St. Mary's hymn and con- 
tinued to sing a variety of music including 
classical, folk, and popular songs. Members

To be eligible for the Letter Club, a girl must have ex- 
celled in at least two sports during the year. All athletic 
events are sponsored by the club beginning with the tra- 
ditional Old Girl-New Girl party. Before this party, coun- 
selors and Letter Club members rush through the halls with 
a tremendous racket to collect the girls and to tell the new 
girls whether they are Sigmas or Mus. The girls gather in 
the gym where they form circles to cheer for their team. 
This year, cookies and punch were served, and the Cold 
Cuts entertained. The climax of the year is the annual 
Spring banquet, usually a picnic. At this time, awards are 
given to outstanding students, and a plaque is awarded to 
the team having earned the most points. Good sportsman- 
ship and rewarding competition in all sports are the aims 
of the Letter Club.

In the fall of every year, hopeful girls try 
out for St. Mary's honorary swimming organi- 
zation. The prospective "Sea Saints" must prove 
their skill in basic strokes, stunts, and synchro- 
nized swimming. Having been chosen, the new 
members begin hours of exhausting practice to 
prepare for the traditional water ballet given 
each year for the student body and public. This 
year the Sea Saints presented ''Manhattan Ex- 
cursion" in which they portrayed characteristic 
phases of life in New York. The faculty advisor 
for the club is Mrs. Gill Ban.

group on campus. Members are chosen from 
students who have shown an interest and 
ability in tap dancing and precision kicking. 
At Christmas, the Caperettes presented a 
program on "the delights of Christmas." At

We are on the threshold of a new beginning. Many of us arrived here on a wave of fears and 
dreams, and were conjronted with life for the first time. As we were gently led into the intricacies of 
our new environment, our fears became challenges: our dreams began to grow. Life at St. Mary's has 
made us stronger, and now ice must express our strength by leading others. Because of the guiding 
light we obtained from our seniors, we look forward to the coming year as a challenge to try to 
succeed in the task of helping and inspiring others at St. Mary's . . . so that they, too, may conquer 
their fears and meet their dreams.

/ am a Sophomore. I ran recognize, appreciate, and 
record my delight in academic achievements and in 
my growth and development. St. Mary's is an ever- 
lasting friendship. It is a select and special relation 
which is a kind of absolute. I ran see the best in my 
being. Happy thoughts, disappointments, and a ninl- 

titntle of memories crowd my mind. 1 have tried to 
take from each day the best it offered, and I have 
given it the lies! of my own. I may have effected a

As a Freshman. I came to St. Mary's full of hopes 
and anticipation. Gradually, in the confusion. I found 
order, in the crowd, a familiar face, and from the 
many students and traditions which had gone before 
me, I found inspiration. In myself. I found new in- 
sights and began to discover the meaning of inde- 

pendence and maturity, and the responsibility that 
goes with each. But most of all, from what St. Mary's 
has given me. I began to give of myself to St. Mary's 
and to set an example for classes and generations of 
girls yet to be.

"U h<> me? . . . i date in the parlor now?" Molh Richardson, 
freshman class president, rect ives nn unexpected message. 

These are the halls in which the life oj this book has 
taken place — the halls where friends were made, and les- 
sons and love learned. These halls are empty now with a 
somber silence, for the end is nearing. The beginning, as 
we remember, was exciting, maybe a bit frightening, but in 
any respect an invaluable step loivard an undeveloped part 
of our lives. Now that we have experienced and learned and 
accepted, we realize that a portion of that undeveloped self 
has been fulfilled. We have experienced the richness of 
friendship, the depth of religion, and the quality of life's 
opportunities. We have also experienced disappointment, 
disillusion, and frustration, but because tee have a broader 
vieiv of life's ivinding road, we can cast aside the stones 
barring our path and proceed to our individual goals with 
reassured confidence. We have learned from the inexhausti- 
ble efforts of our teachers to grasp knowledge and in turn 
to apply it whenever we can. Aside from the knowledge 
bound between our book covers, we have learned the les- 
sons of life — starting with the simple ones, and stepping 
upward as if on a ladder. We have learned the true mean- 
ing of greatness, of virtue, and of quality. Finally we have 
learned that we have only grasped a minute fraction of 
learnedness itself, and that before us is an infinity of 
knowledge and experience. Along with experience and learn- 
ing, we have also accepted. We began upon our first day 

Gilt? fttmst 

trafttttnuB . . 

at St. Mary's — we accepted the responsibilities which bound 
us to the Student Government Associa'ion and to the Honor 
System: we accepted the traditional standards and ideals 
of St. Mary's and sought to make them our own. We have 
accepted the legacy of the past. At commencement we 
participate in St. Mary's most beautiful traditions. Each 
class originates a group of songs and lakes its turn singing 
them on Smedes Hall steps for the annual "step singing.'' 
As the little chapel is "our best loved tradition," it is ap- 
propriate that here our life at St. Mary's ends. Not only 
the cap and gown and the diploma, but also the ritual of 
the Little Sister turning her Big Sister's class ring around 
signifies the end of one's life at St. Mary's. The white hand- 
kerchief dropped by the chief marshal as she faces a semi- 
circle of the entire college officially brings the year to a finis. 
Not only have we accepted these legacies, but we have also 
accepted our academic successes with untold pride, and we 
have accepted our failures and disappointments with hope 
for improvement. But far more achieving than these, we 
have learned to accept others and ourselves with a realization 
of human kind and the variety oj our nature. 

Gkrnj uritlj %m 

Now as a thousand thoughts and remembrances race 
through our minds, we suddenly feel an incompatible urge 
to cling to our security, and to retrace our steps through 
another year. After a moment of indescribable hesitancy 
we know that we cannot, for a year at St. Mary's is like a 
day never to be lived again. For some of us. our life at 
St. Mary's has just begun like a book with the beginning 
pages turned. We will come back and walk through these 
halls gathering along our way, unrevealed experiences. But 
for others, the symbolic cap and gown signifies a completion 
and a success. The handkerchief touching softly upon the 
flagstone walk, carries to every heart a saddened finality 
and opens to tear-stained eyes new pathways to follow — 
pathways going in many directions, projecting themselves 
like spokes from a mighty wheel. Some will travel alone, 
while others with continued companionship will make their 
way together. But regardless of our new destiny, we have 
within us a common experience — that of being a St. Mary's 
girl and of sharing the events of one year together. New' 
faces will replace the old ones, and new lives will grow to 
feel and love the spirit of St. Mary's contained in these old 
stone walls. 


Years shall pass and traditions shall grow 
older and richer, and the ideals and standards 
of St. Mary's will be swept into new hearts 
and be forever preserved in old ones. We who 
leave take with its the intangible aspects of 
lessons in life and the profoundness of knowl- 
edge acquired. We take our Stagecoach with
